For more than 300 years, the Arkansas River has been the lifeblood of Pueblo, continually serving the area’s population beginning with the first settlers in the region and continuing through the era of Pueblo’s steel trade. Today, the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk is a popular urban waterfront tourist destination and an integral part of downtown Pueblo.
The Riverwalk has revitalized a segment of the river that was previously seen as a blight to downtown Pueblo. An important part of Pueblo’s Urban Renewal Plan, HARP’s urban development transformed the community and has been vital in attracting new businesses and stabilizing the economic base of the city.
